No, I didn't.  I have seen orange or gold mixed in, but I like this. 

Yours is definitely cool.  I was actually thinking of various shades of blue/green as the color "mixes."

What is bad is that I don't have a recipe, because I just kept adding until I got what I wanted!

I chopped it up in a food processor, covered it in black paint and formed it into the shapes.  I baked it, then sanded the paint off.  I then buffed it.

Cool and good results.  Did you use an translucent clay or any color mixes for the chopped clay? (photo isn't quite close-up enough to tell for sure --looks like you didn't?)

No, I didn't.  I have seen orange or gold mixed in, but I like this.

Cool dot-slice cane and pendant.  Grin

It looks like you might have joined your bullseye canes together in strips though (2 canes wide) rather than the more traditional square-ish rectangle, before joining slices of the final cane on the pendant... is that what you did?  But it also looks like some of the canes are truncated on one side, so perhaps you made a large sheet of slices, then cut it into strips?

Diane B.

Yes, it is strips, set so they are not even.  It is from pieces from another project.

I made this turquoise out of polymer clay, then made the necklace

That looks awesome!

My favorite clay to extrude is Premo.  I use Premo, Fimo and Kato, all for different things!

I cane with Fimo classic, I make fragile stuff with Kato and I extrude with Premo.  I am weird, I know!

Gave it to my mom for Mother's Day, the pendant is made from a cane I made.

Thanks for the reply.  Sometimes my brain can't get wrapped around whatever I'm looking at. Cheesy  They are very pretty.

Thanks, working with the chain was all new to me!
